Gesture tailgate installed?

Post by npnr » Thu Nov 14, 2019 8:38 pm

I've got an SE model with a powered tailgate, but I'm not sure if it has gesture opening. I've tried a few times and I can't get it to work. Is it even a feature on my model? Can't seem to tell from the spec sheet!

Most owners give up trying to find out whether or not they have this feature, because you look like such a d*** kicking out frantically at your tailgate. :lol:

The manual suggests a slow side to side movement of the foot under either corner. In reality you need to do a rapid kick. ;)

Never worked when I wanted it to. But has opened by accident a few times. That, along with the awful cup holders and no loose change hideaway are my only gripes with the wonderful ipace; first world problems 😂😂

No loose change hideaway??
What about the narrow ledge with a rubber insert just in front of the cup holders? Works fine for me. But that gesture tailgate lottery :x

I have to say mine works perfectly every time! Very handy this time of year when the back of the car is permanently filthy.
